Treasure Island

Bri Edwards


'In-N-Out, Fast Food Stop........ [Waiting For A Ride At A Restaurant; Simple Pleasures; Unruly Kids In Public; A Bit Of Humor; SHORT]


Though my “love” says it’s a bad place to wait,
here I am with two milks. Only milk, no plate.

She doesn’t mean it’s a dangerous place; that she doesn’t mean.
The staff is courteous, the milk is good, and the place is surely clean.
So far, an unruly little boy is all I have to complain about.
If I had my way I’d give him a little swat, then I’d kick him OUT!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

In-N-Out in san carlo california was where i chose to wait for a ride from an auto dealer shuttle vehicle to take me to the next town to retrieve my vehicle. there was a mix-up and i waited there a LONG time but enjoyed writing poetry, drinking milk, and watching people.

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
